I am in the process of filing Chapter 13. I have had the meeting

Resolved Question:

I am in the process of filing Chapter 13. I have had the meeting with my trustee and am scheduled to see the judge on June 15. My employer notified me that my office may be closing, so I started looking for a new job. I got a job offer today, but the pay is $6000 less per year. Will I definitely be able to modify the plan so that my payment reflects this change in income?

Hi JACustomer,
Is June 15 the date for the plan confirmation?

Then you must submit an amended plan (called a plan modification), because you will be asked at the plan confirmation hearing if anything has changed since the original plan submission, and the court cannot reject the amended plan unless it is unfeasible.
